Sucker Punch is a 2011 movie, directed by the sickening mind of Zack Snyder, the creator of Cruel and Unusual Films, a production company hatched together with his lovely wife, Deborah. It is considered on imdb, an action, comedy, thriller. It’s rated 6.1, which is way too much. The first song, voice performed by young Emily Browning herself, looks like a cover over Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams”, only it’s a cover of cover after Marylin Manson, with some really cruel addiction. Last part wasn’t in the original. Think of it a little.
Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
Travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something
Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused
I’m gonna use you and abuse you
I’m gonna know what’s inside
Gonna use you and abuse you
I’m gonna know what’s inside you
I haven’t read Vigilant Citizen dabbing prior to seeing the movie these days, but with all the steampunk arty feeling, it’s crap. Vigilant Citizen may have a point, but it grossly exaggerates all the meanings. If that’s what a Monarch slave feels, it is very creepy. “Alice in Wonderland with machine gunns”. How innocent. But it started with the title.
A sucker punch is a blow made without warning, allowing no time for preparation or defense on the part of the recipient. The term is generally reserved for situations where the way in which the blow has been delivered is considered unfair or unethical. In practice, this often includes blows delivered from close range or from behind.
Snyder says: “There’s a mechanism in the movie that sneaks up on you. We sort of plant the seed of this thing, and then at the end of the movie it kind of comes back around”, and that one interpretation of the film is that it is a critique on geek culture’s sexism and objectification of women. A critic, Andrew O’Hehir, who writes for Salon.com , sees the film’s title its essential theme: “If you want to understand Snyder’s central narrative gambit, it’s right there in the title. He gives us what we want (or what we think we want, or what he thinks we think we want): Absurdly fetishized women in teeny little skirts, gloriously repetitious fight sequences loaded with plot coupons, pseudo-feminist fantasies of escape and revenge. Then he yanks it all back and stabs us through the eyeball”.
This one is absolutely deceiving us, by almost cancelling the MK-Ultra element, and by pushing you to go watch the movie to see for yourself how absurdly fetishist it is.
It is overrated. It was produced based on an “original” screenplay worked out by Snyder and a guy named Steve Shibuya. The feeling I had was the same with what I had for James Patterson. If you are study criminalistics, it’s ok, but it’s not for me. I don’t need to be explained of brain by shrinking my brain. This is more Bernais than Freud.
The actors could be better, but with such a dumb scenario, of course one can’t see nothing aside conspiracies. The actors couldn’t make it better: Emily Browning, a young Australian talent as “Babydoll” (what an “inciting” character name), who performed Manson’s cover of the cover herself, the unforgettable Abbie Cornish as “Sweet Pea”, Jena Malone as “Rocket”, Vanessa Hudgens “Blondie”, Jamie Chung as “Amber”, Carla Gugino as “Dr. Vera Gorski”, Oscar Isaac as “Blue Jones”, Jon Hamm as “High Roller” / “Doctor”, and Scott Glenn, the handler, the Monarch Project handler impersonation, in the role of “Wise Man”. Extremely appropriate. What they say about the movie, as set in a mental institution and happening actually in the mind of a young abused orphan, abused by her stepfather and her handler, whoever it is. I didn’t need too much to recognize some patterns, you see, there is at least a book describing “the practice” in great detail, never denied by the persons in high positions involved, because it’s easy to pretend anytime that such allegations are just crap. Better see some books for yourselves. Don’t read stupid stories, read Trance-Formation of America, and if you consider it mumbo-jumbo, than maybe it is, only it makes a lot of sense. I don’t think the movie is too subtle, anyway, if it is what Snyder says it is, is a great waste of time.
Directed by Zack Snyder, screenplay by Snyder and Shibuya, with an “extended cut” version of 127 minutes (a lot of wasted time, 110 minutes being the released one), and a 6.1 imdb rate, as imdb can be blamed by that. Highly not recommended… except if you feel excited by sexy outfits on young girls in a bordello, in 3D by all means. Please don’t take me wrong!
The trailer is delusional…
